WIAW: Sweets and Snacks

by Courtney on April 16, 2014

Wednesday already? That’s what I’m talkin’ about! The past two days have been super busy. I suddenly have a bunch of extra stuff on my plate (most of which is good!) and I’m trying (yet, somewhat failing) at getting it all organized. It’ll all get done eventually, I know that. But sometimes I let it […]


Weekend Highlights {4/14}

by Courtney on April 14, 2014

Brancott Estate Wines “Flight Song”

Well, another fantastic weekend has come and gone! If nothing else, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, so that itself was enough to make for an awesome couple of days home with the family. Friday night was spent at home (no surprise there) and included not only an amazing home-cooked dinner, but some delicious wine to […]


Looking Forward To Their Arrival

by Courtney on February 7, 2013


Today is going to be a busy, busy day my friends. I’ve got a full day of work, with errands to run on my lunch hour, followed by my 16 prenatal appointment (YAY!), then my final bridesmaids dress fitting (keep your fingers crossed for me that it turns out okay), a quick stop at a […]


Can You Tell?

by Courtney on August 9, 2012


So much good food to share with you this morning! Starting with…last night’s dinner. Oh man. These Chicken Parmesan Burgers. They’re just…so…I don’t even have the words. For some reason, this batch of burgers seemed much larger than the last ones, but I have no idea how that could be possible since it was the […]


Ways To Eat More Healthy Fats

by Courtney on August 2, 2012


Last week, I filled all of you in on my recent diagnosis of HA. Since then, I have had an overwhelming response from many of you, either sharing your own stories or asking questions. Out of all of the questions that I’ve received, the one I get the most is: “How did you go about […]


Free Ice Cream

by Courtney on September 28, 2011


After spending about three hours studying at Starbucks this afternoon, I finally made my way home. Right before I left, I got a text message from Jay asking if I’d be able to stop and pick up a quick pick lotto ticket for tonight’s lotto drawing (hey, a dollar and a dream, right?) so I […]


Labor Day Happenings

by Courtney on September 5, 2011


Well, I’d say today has been a pretty good Labor Day for me. How about yours? After spending a good half hour lounging, sipping, and thoroughly enjoying my fresh mug of coffee from the new pot, I got to work on a few other labor-intensive activities that I wanted to get done on this rainy […]


Any Day With This Is A Good Day

by Courtney on June 4, 2011


Today has been a busy and productive Saturday! Whoop! Our afternoon started off with some errands, so to make them more bearable, we stopped for a couple Caramel Light Frappuccino’s from Starbucks. This is actually the second one I’ve had this week…the first one was consumed a few days ago when I was sweating my […]


Holy Moly…It’s Almost Time!!!

by Courtney on August 11, 2010


It’s been a whirlwind of a night, so I’m going to give you the “photo” version, since I’m in seriously in need of some sleep before getting up at 4am! Dinner Roasted red pepper marinated grilled chicken, homemade mashed potatoes & chives, and some carrots. Delicious, to say the least.         More packing ensued…outfits […]


Smoothie On My Radar…

by Courtney on June 13, 2010

Aaaaand the winner is….. YES!  We our finally proud owners of a blender again!!  After going back and forth between a few different options, we decided to go with the Oster 16-Speed Blender.  I was a little leery, only because our last blender was an Oster, and well, we all know how that turned out…but […]
